I've always been the kind of person that doesn't like to limit myself to one genre of music, and this year was perfect for that.
My mom is a graphic designer, so whenever I buy a new album and I share what I'm listening to with her, she pays just as much attention to how it looks as she does how it sounds.
I wear my sunglasses at night, so I can see the Sleigh Bells stage without risking blindness. What more would you expect from a band with amplifiers stacked to the ceiling than a strobe-lit show jarring enough to induce epileptic seizure?
RIP Michael Davis, bassist for the MC5.
